After having an infected tooth last week, I decided Monday was a good day to have my rotted wisdom teeth removed (one of them was infected).
I was on antibiotics last week and will continue for another week with that treatment. I'm taking the generic version of Vicodin for pain management and child's liquid ibuprofen for the inflammation. I am not allowed to exercise until next Tuesday. Instead of my limited 5 foods that I was eating to control my blood sugars, I am now stuck with liquid and mushy foods for the next three weeks. Think watered down apple/grape juice mix (my own - think water with hint of fruit), baby foods (veggies, fruits), Boost, soy milk, pureed tofu and bananas, and sugar-free ice cream and sugar-free pudding. I'm considering adding mashed sweet potatoes tomorrow, but it depends on my blood sugars. I have to intake enough calories so I don't throw up with the Januvia.
My blood sugars were in the high 190's, mid 200's before surgery. They are now in the high 200 range to as high as 300. My doctor refuses to put me on insulin and I have little money. What to do? Any ideas?
Remember: I can't chew food and I can't exercise for another week (I am so bouncing off the wall from boredom!). I am used to doing 4 miles a day and 7 miles on Saturday. This is going to be a long week…
